F H means water isn't coming into the washer properly from your house either on the hot or cold water side. It doesn't matter if you select cold/cold, during wash--both hot and cold water are used to regulate the temperature if the cold water is too cold to activate the detergent. Either way, to get rid of the error, just leave the washer plugged in for 20 minutes and the error will go away on it's own. As for your issue, until the washer gets hot water, you won't be able to use the washer I'm sorry to say.

I hope I have earned a 5 star rating. We are on the honor system here. Please remember to rate my service by selecting a star at the top or bottom of the screen before you leave today and reply back here letting me know with a rating of 1-5 stars (5 being the best).
